Sony's next flagship phone, the Xperia XZ4 looks to combine power and Sony's imaging know-how into one of 2019's finest flagship devices.

Sony's path in the smartphone business has been a long and interesting one. On the one hand, its sales figures for a range of really impressive devices haven't been anywhere near what the Japanese firm would have liked. On the other hand, its imaging sensor business provides the sensors for almost everybody's smartphones, so the odds are excellent that the phone you're holding right now has a Sony sensor in it.

Sony appears to be combining everything it knows and throwing it into its next flagship, the Sony Xperia XZ4. Here's what we know so far.

Design

  • 6.5 inch display
  • 21:9 "CinemaWide" display
  • Likely flattened design in line with last year's flagships

Camera

  • Triple-lens camera system
  • 52MP primary lens

Performance

  • Snapdragon 855 expected
  • Early benchmarks suggest superior performance

Battery

  • 4400mAh battery

Pricing and availability

  • Not likely to be cheap
  • Don't expect it quickly in Australia, at least officially

The Sony Xperia XZ4 appears to be packing some serious technology under the hood, and Sony prides itself on being a premium brand. That's a combination that is unlikely to lead to the Sony Xperia XZ4 being a low-cost device. There's no word on specific price points, but given the general smartphone market at the close of 2018, it's likely to hit at around the $1,500 price point, maybe higher.

Sony is expected to launch the Sony Xperia XZ4 as part of its press conference at Mobile World Congress on 25 February 2019, or at the very least give us a sneak peek at its evolving form. If it does launch then, it's expected to come to market in Europe relatively quickly afterwards.

Then there's the question of Australian availability. Sony hasn't released a new flagship phone in Australia for quite some time now, with the Xperia XZ3 still not officially available Down Under. Sony doesn't even have much in the way of stock for the Xperia XZ2 in its local online store, which also doesn't bode well.

Historically, we've always had to wait a fair time to see new Sony handsets in Australia, but that's typically been because Sony's been selling the prior model. The Xperia XZ3 is nowhere to be seen (officially) Down Under, which raises questions around the Xperia XZ4's general availability. It may well be that this is a flagship phone you have to import if you want one at all.
